SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- The IPsphere Forum (www.ipsphereforum.org) today announced its name, board members and officers. The forum recently announced its initial formation in a press release entitled, "Open Forum Develops Architecture for Federated Service Infrastructure" (refer http://www.ipsphereforum.org/newsevents/060805/). The IPsphere Forum is a member-funded, open community focused on the "business of IP" and coordinating efforts to develop the architecture for an IP infrastructure able to support the broadest possible set of service provider and network user business/service models.

At an executive meeting held earlier in June at Supercomm 2005, the board of directors and officers of the IPsphere Forum were elected. The IPsphere Forum board is comprised of individuals representing the following companies: Alcatel, BT, Cisco Systems, France Telecom, Huawei, Juniper Networks, Lucent Technologies, Red Zinc, Siemens, T-Com, Telenor, and Tellabs. IPsphere Forum officers are Chair Kevin Dillon (Juniper Networks), Vice Chair Monique Morrow (Cisco Systems), Secretary Omar Elloumi (Alcatel) and Treasurer Tom Walsh (Lucent Technologies).

"As a member-funded, open forum, the IPsphere Forum's objective is to encourage and catalyze the effort related to the deployment of an IP infrastructure that can meet the profitability and capability needs of network, content and applications service providers and service user communities," said Kevin Dillon, Chair, IPsphere Forum. "The forum intends to promote the standardization of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) approaches to network service federation, publication and consumption by identifying requirements and current gaps, specifying mechanisms to address these, and contributing to the work conducted by associated standard bodies."
